About This Project


Mustache! is my first book with the amazing Mac Barnett. In it, handsome King Duncan discovers the many downsides of divine-right absolute monarchy in a feudal, agrarian economy with a limited policing force and ample vectors for precise, targeted acts of vandalism. Though Mac somehow says it simpler than that. I guess that's why he's a writer.

Displayed here is some of my favorite art, and a large smattering of the concept work.

Don't walk, run to your nearest bookstore to use their computers to go online and buy this book from! Or, you could buy it there, I guess.

About Kevin

Kevin Cornell spends his days in Philadelphia, drawing made-up things. You know… like a “dog driving a bus”, or a “talking can of beets”. If you ever see a talking can of beets, tell Kevin. He's been trying to figure that one out for years.

He has illustrated several books, websites, and comics, and has been doing it for quite a long time now. There's a ton more work on his old site, if you've a hankering to see more. To see his most current sketches, comics and drawings, check out his instagram.

If you have a book you want Kevin to illustrate, please get in touch with his agent, the distinguished Steve Malk. If you wish to contact Kevin because he's behind on his payments and you need to know where to send the next toe… hmmm… send that to his agent, too.
